Harbor Freight Pittsburgh Motorcycle Lift

Pittsburgh-motorcycle-liftPRODUCT REVIEW by Matt Kopec
Tired of kneeling every time you perform routine maintenance, or have a bike project that’s sitting so low you’d rather put it off than spend another day lying on that cold cement floor? Lucky for us, Harbor Freight has an economical solution for the home do-it-yourselfer, the Pittsburgh 1,000-pound capacity motorcycle lift (#68892/$429).

This lift consists of a diamond plate steel platform and all-steel frame. It operates via a hydraulic foot pump, so no air compressor or power source is required. You can raise your ride to a max height of 29-1/2″ or use the integrated leg lock to safely adjust the height at various levels in between. Casters on all four corners allow you to move the lift easily even when your bike’s strapped onto it. Retract the front casters and the lift stays put. A removable diamond plate steel ramp provides easy access to the work platform. Just make sure the front casters are retracted before you roll your bike on.

A 7″-wide tire stop keeps your bike from rolling off the lift and an adjustable tire chock keeps the bike in place.

U-hooks on both sides of the work platform, front and back, allow straps (not included) to be attached. Use them!

Overall this Pittsburgh Motorcycle Lift works great. It’s a solid, economical way to get your bike projects off the garage floor. Unless, of course, you prefer to work harder not smarter. If so, I recommend a good pair of knee pads and some strong painkillers. AIM
